#5 Added Relaxation

Owning a lakefront or lake view home in Branson, MO is an ideal location to just sit back and relax. Most lake front/view builders try to incorporate the view of the lake in the direction they place the windows of the home, therefore creating the best scenic view.

#4 Deep Sleep

Whether you are a Baby Boomer or searching for a vacation home, waterfront living can help you get a good night’s rest. The sounds of the lake will relax your mind and you’ll begin to drift into a calming state which leads to a rejuvenating morning each day!

#3 Less Stress

Water is scientifically proven to improve our general well-being. It makes us feel good! That’s probably the reason why 49% of Americans choose to swim or partake in water sports while on vacation.

#2 Increased Immune System

As living near water often lowers stress and puts you in a deeper sleep, it also increases your Immune System! When you are stressed or are experiencing sleep deprivation, your risks for a common cold or other virus is stronger. Who wouldn’t want to avoid illness?!

#1 Longer Life!
When you live by water you can’t help but be called to get in! Leisure-time physical activity is associated with longer life expectancy according to a study done by the National Cancer Institute (NCI). In fact, the study found that people who engage in leisure-time physical activity can add as much as 4.5 years onto their life!
